In 1991 he was runner-up to China's Zhao Jianhua at the IBF World Championships in Copenhagen. He won the 1992 Olympic men's singles gold medal at Barcelona, defeating fellow countryman Ardy Wiranata in the final. This achievement, together with a gold medal for his then fiancé Susi Susanti, was historical for Indonesia winning the first Olympic golden medals in 50 years history of the country. A crowd estimated at 500,000 to one million Indonesians lined the streets of Jakarta when Susi Susanti and Alan Budikusuma came home in August 1992 and received a two-hour parade. Governor of West Java Yogie S. M. awarded him a honorary West Java citizenship following his victory.
Among his titles, all in singles, are the Thailand Open (1989, 1991), China Open (1991), German Open (1992), Indonesian Open (1993), World Cup (1993), and Malaysian Open (1995). Budikusuma was a member of world champion Indonesian Thomas Cup teams in 1996.
He is married to Susi Susanti (王蓮香), a women's badminton Olympic gold medalist (also in 1992). Together they have three children Lourencia Averina, born 1999, Albertus Edward, born in 2000 and Sebastianus Frederick, born in 2003. Alan and Susi have a badminton club in Jakarta Utara. Alan Budi has a younger brother named Yohan Hadikusuma who is also a badminton player but representing Hong Kong.
